Forum: GratefulDead Subject: need streaming help

I've noticed the last few times I've been listening to streaming GD, that the music stops streaming after each cut, requiring me to go to the computer and click the next cut. Pain in the ass. I pretty much have stopped collecting shows because it is so easy to just go to LMA and stream what I want to hear. But with this new problem, it makes it almost impossible to listen to a streaming show. Help?

This is an ongoing issue since last Saturday sometime. There are other threads about this here. Best thing to do is stream the show via the VBR link on the left side of the page. Use WinAmp, Windows Media Player, etc. and stream it that way. Don't use their player gadget.

Thanks for the help. Tho I've listened to LMA for quite a while, this is the 1st time I've looked at the Forum. So, clicking the VBR M3U definitely works. On my Windows XP PC, it brings up a cool little media player called VLC Media. However, on my Vista laptop, it brings up iTunes, which I really do not like for various reasons. Any suggestions on how I can get my Vista/laptop to bring up something else other than iTunes as a media player?

I'm not sure what determines what your default media player is and I don't have Vista. On my XP box, I have both WinAmp and Windows Media Player v10. When I click the VBR stream button, WinAmp opens and that's how I stream. From that, I surmise that WinAmp is my default media player, but that may not be the case. I have iTunes installed on that box but it doesn't start when I stream. My laptop only has Windows Media Player but I'v not yet streamed shows from that since my wife use it more than I do.

I'd suggest trying to install WinAmp onto your Vista box and see if you can get it to start when clicking the streaming link.

Good Luck!

not only does it cut after each song, but it also doesnt even play the whole song. WTF! I was listening to a show today and the song is 9 mins long. Well the time shown for each individual song is sometimes shorter than the song that is being played. Does this make sense to anyone?? If not, e-mail me and i'll tell you more about the problem I'M having.

I would erase that address or alter it, if not, your mailbox will be full of the weirdest shit you have ever seen for the rest of your life...

Maybe they can put the old one back, the one before the last one that had the item image in the window, made embedding much nicer.
